As you may know my love of the Pistil Stitch began long ago when it first stole my heart from the French Knot. Although the French Knot was really miffed for a while, you'll be happy to know that it has moved on.
And this is why I love the Pistil Stitch. It does the most amazing things like letting me space it around a little dot that measured only 1/4" across. Now do you see why I jilted the French Knot? Ah, love, can't stitch without it.
